Agricola Tenuta Colpaola Matelica Verdicchio 2019

A crisp and characteristically fresh wine with lively citrus
notes complemented by delicate white floral nuances,
classic minerality and a saline note on the finish.
ProducerNote
Agricola Tenuta Colpaola embodies a passion for Verdicchio, as well as for the land
that makes it unique: Matelica and the Marche region. The Porcarelli family has
owned the Tenuta Colpaola estate in the Braccano Frazione of Matelica since the
1970s. For many years, the grapes were sold to the local co-operative but in 2013 the
family bottled its first wines and has not looked back since. The 10 hectares of mainly
east-facing vineyard, which at 650 metres above sea level are the highest in the
Matelica denomination, are farmed organically and are fully certified. The estate is
surrounded by woodland and greenery and the family aims for a sustainable
lifestyle. Only one style of Verdicchio is produced and the desire to preserve freshness
and authenticity is highlighted by the decision to bottle with stelvin closure.
Vintage
2019 was an almost perfect vintage for Verdicchio. The growing period saw an ideal
balance between sun exposure for the maturation and physiological development
of the vine, alongside just enough rain to refresh the vines and prevent hydric stress.
The fruit was harvested in excellent condition between 26th October to 5th
November and expresses characteristic vibrant fruit and high natural acidity.
Vineyard
The Marche in Central Italy is where the Verdicchio flourishes as one of Italy’s finest
native white varieties. The name Verdicchio translates as ‘little green one’, due to a
distinctive green tinge on the grapes even when fully ripe. The vineyard is located in
the DOC of Verdicchio di Matelica, which has a north-south orientation running
parallel to the Adriatic Sea. Mountains either side create a valley, sheltering the vines
from any seaborne ventilation. The Verdicchio vines are Matelicese clones, which
were planted in 2007 at a density of 3,200 vines per hectare. The Guyot trained vines
are organically cultivated with east-facing orientation at 650 metres’ elevation on the
hills behind Mount San Vicino, in the hamlet of Braccano. The climate is distinctively
continental, with warm summers and cold winters. The diurnal temperature variation
extends the growing season, producing aromatic wines with naturally high acidity.
Harvests take place in the second half of October. The grapes are certified organic
and are harvested by hand.
Winemaking
Vinified with minimal intervention. The highest quality grapes were selected and
gently pressed. The must underwent cool static decantation and was fermented in
stainless steel temperature controlled tanks, to offer a pristine expression of the
Verdicchio variety and the cool-climate terroir of Matelica. The wine spent four
months in stainless steel, and two months cellaring prior to release.
